K is for Kill or Cure

Kill or cureKill or cure is my favourite way to solve a problem, if at all possible. Rather than muddling along just about getting by, do something to force the issue. It will either cure it or make it far worse, making it easier to make a decision.

For example, deciding between two options is as easy as tossing a coin. Not because you’re committed to what it lands on, but because when it has landed you’re either happy with it or disappointed. In that moment you then know what you really feel about the options.

Another way of thinking of it is to call your own bluff. So you reckon you want to write a novel? Get on and write it. Get it out of your system. You’ll either prove you can or prove you can’t. Either way is better than sitting wondering.

You want to be an artist? Get out there and paint. You want to get that dream job? Start applying. You want to travel? Arrange it and start on your way. Put the effort in. Call your own bluff.  Kill or cure.

  1. Calling your own bluff is an interesting thought to ponder. I think better than “Kill or Cure.”
